there. the top 10% wealthiest have half the country's income. the other half goes to the bottom 90%. combine that with two political facts. one, president obama is at or near all time lows in popularities. he would be a drag on his own party if elections were held. the gop's party hit bottom. an r next to your name in swing areas is also a drag as far as voters are concerned. 2014 may not be as predictable as everyone is making it out to be and why it's critical for politicians to be on the right side of this message. buffalo springfield said there is something happening out here and what it is ain't exactly clear. an adviser tried to spell this out in a memo that can be seen in an open letter to washington in the establishment of both parties. they argue that the growing gap is pushing the country to a tipping point. underneath this turmoil, you can see the shape of a populous movement that will in time move the politicians to action or throw them out of office. the country is moving towards new leaders who will be problem solvers and build institutions capable of making a differe
